World Twirling Championships

 April 12th - 16th, 2006 marked the World Twirling Championships held in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Twirlers from over 13 countries joined in this spectacular twirling event.

Individual twirlers, twirling teams and auxiliary units competed in events typically seen at NBTA twirling competitions. However, performances were nothing but typical. The pressure was on as these top twirling athletes competed in front of renowned World Judges.

Teams joined to march in the closing ceremonies, as fans waved flags and cheered in support of their favorite twirling teams. While many came to play, only a few walked away with the title of World Twirling Champions. To all competitors, Netherlands 2006 will be remembered as a twirling experience too last a life-time.
